- Wedding: November 2017
It was a beautiful sunny day (rare in September) and as the day was turning into evening SO got home from work with picnic supplies and told me that we were going to King’s Park for a picnic.. (he would usually ask me if I wanted to go, not tell me we were going, so this piqued my interest).
We have been eating extremely healthy and not drinking alcohol, so when he suggested we get a bottle of wine on the way, I was suspicious!
Anyway, we got to King’s Park, he cooked, we ate, then we took the picnic rug and found a secluded spot and he gave me a decoy gift, a polar watch, as a “well done” for training so hard lately, then he came around behind me to help me set it up, when snuggled up against me he said said “but what I really brought you up here for was to tell you how much I love you *insert other stuff here* so will you marry me? I said “of course!” Cue hugs and kisses! A few minutes later he said “that was a yes, right?” Hahaha! He was extremely nervous when he asked, it was gorgeous! We broke our no drinking spell for a couple of glasses of our favourite wine in celebration.
I really thought we were not going to be engaged until November (our 5 year anniversary). We are so happy & excited!
